Exclusive: Kendra Wilkinson's Heartbreak - Pal's Husband Commits Suicide!

Kendra Wilkinson Kicks Off Summer With VEET At W Hollywood Drai's Pool

Kendra Wilkinson is having a rough week, to say the least. On the heels of finding out about Hank Baskett‘s alleged cheating scandal with a transsexual, while Kendra was pregnant, the reality star is now having to face a close friend’s suicidal death! Kendra’s model pal Katie Cleary, 32, received the news that her husband Andrew Stern, 40, committed suicide on June 22, just weeks after his wife was spotted getting cozy in Cannes with Leo DiCaprio and Adrian Grenier. Law enforcement say that Andrew shot himself in the head while he was at a shooting range in the San Fernando Valley. The Humane Society's 2013 Genesis Awards Benefit Gala - Arrivals “Kendra is absolutely devastated over the news of Andrew’s death,” a family insider tells Star. “She was shocked to find out about her own husband cheating on her, but now to find out that her best friend’s husband is dead is just way too much. “She is really shaken up and can’t believe the news. Kendra can’t stop crying and just wants this tragic time to end.”

Kendra, 29, and Katie, who was in the midst of getting a divorce from Andrew, were recently photographed having lunch together on April 1 — before either of the women were facing such trauma over their husbands.

On June 23 reports surfaced that Hank, 31, had been unfaithful to his wife after having an affair with transsexual model Ava Sabrina London in April. To top off Kendra’s nightmare, the reality star has her hands full while trying to care for her 4 week old daughter, Alijah, and son Hank Jr., 4, both of whom have been keeping her awake during all hours of the night.

“Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh I got sleep last night,” Kendra reluctantly tweeted on June 18, happy to get at least one night of rest.

“Kendra is absolutely exhausted. She is spending her days and nights stressing over Hank’s affair all while trying to keep a sense of normalcy around the baby and her son,” the insider continues. “She’s a pretty tough cookie, but with the news of the suicide on top of everything that’s already going on, its enough to make anyone crack.”
